Titan Theatre Company's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM to Open 10/18
Titan Theatre Company's ambitious new production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare's infectious comedy of sly sprites, rude mechanicals and confused lovers will begin its limited New York City run at The Secret Theatre in Long Island City beginning on October 18, 2013 through November 3, 2013.
"Audiences have embraced our signature approach to the Bard and this season we're pushing the envelope of our work even further as we bring the actor's nightmare to life with our take on the Dream," says Artistic Director Banovez. "We've assembled nine of New York's best classical actors who will take to the stage each night to play sixteen roles and, with the exception of Puck, our Master of Ceremonies, no one will know his or her track until their names are drawn from a hat before the audience. Each show will be an entirely unexpected experience, filled with gender reversals, shock and awe, yet audiences will still be treated to the captivating, electric and visceral performances they've come to expect from us."
The cast of A Midsummer Night's Dream features Titan Theatre Company members Laura Frye and Alexis Black, as well as Titan favorite Sean Hudock (star of the critically acclaimed film "Private Romeo," Shakespeare Theatre of NJ), Emily Trask (Twelfth Night at Folger Theater, Yale Rep, Utah Shakespeare), Matthew Foster ("House of Cards"; "Law & Order: SVU"), Gregory Isaac (Chicago Shakespeare, Steppenwolf), Ryan Lee(Virginia Shakespeare, Illinois Shakespeare), Jonathan Matthew Finnegan (Actor's Theatre of Louisville), and Lloyd Mulvey (Milwaukee Rep, Utah Shakespeare).
